Book Summary
The Community dispersed. Some prepared desperately for war against the ancient evil of Sauron. Some struggled with the betrayal of the magician Saruman. Only Frodo and Sam remained to wear the damn Ring of Power to be destroyed in Mordor, the dark Kingdom where Sauron was supreme. His guide was Gollum, deceitful and full of lust, slave of the corruption of the Ring. Thus continues the magnificent and successful adventure story initiated in The Fellowship of the Ring, which reaches its touching climax in The Return of the King.
